Wasn’t sure if I’d get into this or not, but the pilot easily dug its hooks into me.
Stargirl, starring Luke Wilson as the Stripey/Pat and Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl season one has arrived on DC Universe and CW and new episodes are being dropped weekly.
Wilson explained why he was interested in the project.
“To think that I’ve got 25 years of acting and I’m getting to do something I’ve never done before — a superhero project,” he tells EW with a laugh. “My brother Owen’s two sons who are about 5 and 8, and my brother Andrew’s daughter is 10. I showed them a few of these scenes, and it was just so funny to see them get quiet and really concentrate and then start asking me questions like, ‘So you operate the robot?!’ They very rarely show interest in anything that I’m up to! It was funny to see them get immediately hooked in by the show.”Luke Wilson explains why he joined DC’s Stargirl | EW.com
Stargirl is a reluctant teen named Courtney Whitmore who learns how to use this totally cool staff she discovers in a case in the basement. The staff has a personality all its own and can fight, fly and more. In the wielding hands of Stargirl, the daughter of Starman, it’s a fearsome weapon.
I’ll be reviewing new episodes on Mondays of Stargirl just like we do with Harley Quinn, also on DC Universe. With 22,000+ comic books to read, and new ones being added, these two original shows, this makes a compelling niche service to subscribe to.
Stargirl season one episodes are released every Monday on DC Universe and an edited version with commercials on CW on Tuesday as of May 18, 2020.
